Facepalm

On a Shimano front derailleur which screw do you turn so in the big ring the derailleur moves away from the frame? Right now the chain is all but rubbing.

9 days ago I paid for my replacement frame and fork. I figured I would call today since I hadn't heard anything yet. when I talked to the LBS they expected it to be another three weeks - ven though it is shipping from within the United States.

If that is true it will be a 3 month process from the beginning of this late in May.

Inner screw counter clockwise? I turned it some and nothing seemed to happen.

No, it is. It’s rewarding people for riding their usual routes that may have a segment

Turn the outer screw CCW, but it won't go anywhere without cable tension.

+1.

Also, sometimes the derailleur will have "settled in" to that spot, so a shift down and back up may put the derailleur farther out. If repeated shifting won't move the derailleur farther out, you may need more cable tension.

It could be cool if the segments were hand-picked. The algorithm/criteria currently driving the selections isn't hacking it.

No kidding! I already cut down 3 acacia trees, now to get some copper sulfate to kill 'em dead.

Very lame and also worthless.

Seriously. I rode 30 miles this AM and n ow going out to mow the lawn... it's all one contiguous lawn, not two lawns. May ride again with my wife later but only if she begs.

Ah. The screw closest to the crank?

Kudos.

On my Shimano FDs, yes. You can verify that it's the right screw by turning it clockwise and looking for inward movement.

Oh yeah, you showed a pic of one of them newfangled Shimano FDs. If your Shimano FD has JIS Phillips head limit screws, it's not gonna be like the one in the pic.

It’s not difficult if there is a segment on a road you ride frequently.

Now that my commute is a stroll down the hallway, there's no segment I ride that frequently. I did break my olde commute into 1/2 mile segments, I suppose I could do some loops repeating one of those half miles :)

You are one here.

I haven't seen that it's activated here.

In the big ring the outer part of the derailleur is too close to the chain? If the cable isn't tight enough it won't matter how much you loosen the screw. The screw is to limit the movement of the derailleur, the shifter is supposed to put it in the right place. If the shifter cable is frayed the first thing you usually notice is the cable seems loose.

Holy Moley! Train caught fire on the trestle over Tempe Town Lake. Looks like they must be wooden ties on that trestle the way it's burning.

Course, that is one high energy reporter on scene.

There's not slack in the cable.

The cage has always close to the chain, but today when I lubed the chain and then spun it in reverse it there was a noise like it was actually rubbing. Not sure why it may have moved.

What if there aren't any segments where you're higher than 5000th out of 10,000, because every cyclist on the bicycle-happy Peninsula also rides there? Do I have to add some obscure back street to my rides?

There may not be any apparent slack, actually there couldn't be any in the big ring. Reach under the downtube and pull on the cable and see if the derailleur moves out to the limit screw.
Is it a clamp on derailleur? Sometimes after rough shifting the clamp will move a bit changing adjustments. Could happen with a braze on but less likely.

If it doesn't rub in the big ring/small cog while riding why worry about it?

I spent 7 hours on Saturday, refitting my Battaglin MAX bike. New cables, new rear derailleur, new cassette, new tires, new handlebar, new bar tape. It took so long because I was trying to make a short cage Centaur derailleur work rather than swap in the medium cage Veloce I'd bought for the job. So after a lot of time spent fruitlessly, I swapped in the Veloce and voila! It works. Now I'm running 53/39 and 12-30.

The frame is so old, it doesn't take a regular cable guide under the BB. No, it's got a plate with two holes in it. And for years, I've been tolerating the sub-optimal shifting from all the added friction it causes. I threaded some shift cable liner through the holes, and fed the cables through that, heavily greased.

New bar, because the Cinelli Nerve I had on it is 1) real old, and 2) a LO--O-ONG way down to the drops, compared with what The Cool Kids are using these days. I used a SOMA Highway One, which is the right shape, and unlike nearly every other bar, it comes in 26.0 and silver. Finished it all off with white Fizik tape. Even got some white gloves just for this bike, so I don't foul the tape as quickly.

I thought about getting 28s, but the 25s I've been running barley fit though the calipers as it is. And the chainstays are pretty close to the tires. SO instead I just replaced the old Ultra Sports with new GP's, pumped to 100/105.

Today was the 'shakedown cruise'. The new bar fits well, in fact it might need to drop a cm or so - at the same stem height, I feel more upright. Or maybe turn the bar down a hair. Shifting was MUCH better! AND the 30 works well! And I think that the tires made a big difference, even though they're the same size at the same pressure. Felt much less rattly. I'm in love all over again!
